Heat medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Coat skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add turkey. Cook, stirring to break up meat, until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels if necessary; set aside.
Add onion and bell pepper to skillet. Cook 4 minutes or until onion is translucent, stirring frequently. Add cooked turkey, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, 1/3 cup water, cumin, and ground red pepper. Cook 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Cover; set aside.
Bring remaining 1 1/3 cups water and salt, if desired, to a boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in milk and potatoes. (Do not whisk.) Spoon mashed potatoes evenly over turkey mixture. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Place skillet over medium-low heat. Cover; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese melts.
